Taken from new album Generation Rx
Good Charlotte have released a new music video for “Self Help”, the latest single taken from their recently released album Generation Rx. The video provides a physical metaphor for the song’s tough lyrical themes, following a boxer as he works to better himself and his mind. It’s a glance into the demanding perseverance that it takes to overcome self-doubt, depression, personal frustration, and other mental health issues. The video was filmed onsite at City of Angels Boxing Gym in Los Angeles, CA and Summit Theater in Colorado. Jake Stark, who previously worked with the band on their impactful music videos for singles “Prayers” and “Shadowboxer”, directed the piece.
Good Charlotte released their acclaimed new album “Generation Rx” on September 14th, 2018 via MDDN/BMG. The album represents both a new chapter and full circle moment for the group-brothers Joel [vocals] and Benji Madden [guitar, vocals], Billy Martin [guitar], Paul Thomas [bass], and Dean Butterworth [drums]. Powered by punk spirit, rock songcraft, and cinematic ambition, they retain the signature vitality and vulnerability of their formative years, while delivering an urgent, unafraid, and undeniable message befitting of two decades in the game.
The band is currently on tour in celebration of the record, and will be performing in major cities across the United States and Canada through to the end of November. Good Charlotte will return to the road in Europe and The UK for a tour kicking off February 1, 2019.
